The original Tibor large arbor reels have performed so flawlessly for decades that many anglers will never trade up to the new Signature models. When you buy a Tibor, you’re purchasing a fly reel for life, one that could catch thousands of fish in the most demanding environments known to fishing. Original Tibor reels feature a classic large arbor design for fast line retrieve and impregnated cork drag system that clamps down incredibly tight. The ball bearing spindle system provides glass-smooth retrieve and performance under load. These are the reels that made Tibor famous in the modern era of fly reel design.
